Expeditions: Viking is a rough-hewn game with an abundance of charm. Deep role playing and nuanced, tactical combat save this technical mess.
While I've enjoyed my time with Expeditions: Viking so far, despite its problems, there is still much to see, many to meet, and at least one more church to loot.
Expeditions: Vikings fails to sustain the achieves of itsantecesor. Beside its technical issues the game have some problems with the difficult and with the development of his narrative. Only suitable for true lovers of the genre or the historical time.

While Expeditions: Viking won't be winning any awards for ground-breaking storytelling or innovative gameplay, it's compelling in just the right way that keeps commanding attention throughout. I found it to be a lot of fun, if a little unpolished in places.
Logic Artists' turn-based historic RPG has great combat and a story cut from the same cloth as the Vikings TV show, but it's in dire need of patching
Logic Artists' follow-up to the cult hit Expeditions: Conquistador improves on nearly everything, but is hamstrung by too many game-breaking bugs and glitches.
Expeditions: Vikings, while not perfect, offers outstanding tactical combat, with excellent character and world development. You'll encounter a host of interesting characters, fulfilling quests and important decisions as you travel from Denmark, to Britannia, in a quest to save your clan.
Expeditions: Vikings is a fantastic role playing strategy game for those of us whom feel the need to raid and pillage. It creates an authentic social environment where traditions and customs and be enforced or forsaken, much like the gods and myths in the Norse universe. Its a bit clunky, and not very pretty, but neither were the Vikings. With a few more character portraits, and some spit and polish it could be a real gem for any gaming collection.
Expeditions: Viking finds an excellent balance between historical realism and RPG mechanics.
I enjoyed my time with Expeditions: Viking, even though noticeable technical problems can hold it back. Its engaging story kept me constantly intrigued, and made me want to survive for the sake of my village. Long load times and a few glitched out quests really held back the experience from ascending the level to other great strategy titles, but I would definitely recommend to strategy fans because of its deep and engaging gameplay.
